Today was another great day on site with many volunteers coming out of the woodwork to help us finish up. Matt with the help of Hugh McElveen, Callum McElveen and Helen has bottomed the great pit where there are fire-reddened boulders and burnt bone in the base. Craig and Tom have emptied the inner ditch so all the action is now homing in on the north end of the trench where the outer ditch continues to go down, thanks to the hard work of Joseph, Livy, Donal, Katee and Muirne Lyons (National Monuments Service). Billy and Geraldine have started recording the long sections. Archaeologist Ian Russell (ACS) arrived on site and very generously offered to record the site with the company’s drone, which is greatly appreciated. It was wonderful to welcome to the site our long-standing supporters James and Margaret Nugent with their extended family and Anthony Murphy with his family. Another distinguished visitor was Laureen Buckley (human bone expert) who brought a fabulous cake from a recent significant birthday party. Many thanks to Catherine Bonner who kept us supplied with tea throughout the day and the Redhouse family who kindly plied us all with ice creams. Its a great life ( … if you don’t weaken)!
